It is all water under the bridge at this point in time but I do seem to remember his grandmother stating he was born in Kenya.
Perhaps she is demented.

nope. it was another example of a birther manipulating a recording. in the full transcript sarah obama specifically stated he was born in hawaii ( and has repeatedly said so ).

I think when he was a kid...saying he was born in Kenya sounded exotic
school had him born in Kenya...he was born in Kenya when he book was published too

Then it all came back to bite him in the butt when he got older and go into politics...

So yeah, of course he lied....either he lied about being born in Kenya...or he lied about not being born in Kenya

when did he claim to be born in kenya? you made up a scenario where he could have but there's no evidence to suggest he ever did ( and i've talked to people he went to high school with ).

I've never understood why it matters. Barack Obama was born the son of an American born mother who had American residency and was married when Barack was born.

The birthers go crazy for 6 years and then what happens? The republicans run a guy who was born in Canada (Ted Cruz), and the same people say it's ok because he was born the son of an American born mother who was married and living in Canada when Ted was born.

Besides I believe the video is fake. But you never know nowadays.
Like Trump is a saint of honesty. Also, Trump seems to have so far influenced more hate crimes since starting his 1st term.

Man, I don't even want that to be true, now. I cannot imagine how this inept nation and congress would deal with that.


Will they declare his Presidency invalid? Laws he signed no longer count? Biden was not VP$ Declare him a non-person, like USSR used to do?
I don't even want to think about it.
Then don't.

It was disproved years ago.

actually the birthers do have a legal point on this one. there is an age requirement on married mothers to automatically confer citizenship in births abroad. obama's mom would have missed the requirement by 3months ( but the "kenyan birth" scenario is so absurd it's a moot point ).

What difference does it make? He is a US citizen due to his Mother being a US citizen. I am no fan of Obama, but this is a dead issue. Talk about beating a dead horse.

There are many valid things to attack Obama on. His record of class warfare. His my way or the highway approach to leadership. His Chicago style gutter politics.
There are many valid things.

His citizenship or where he was born? Leave that dead horse alone.
